The Craft Behind the Sound

Sound, playability, and looks

 

I had a vision of crafting an affordable mandolin that was beautiful, played easily, and sounded great.

The TKD Mandolin is named after master luthier, Timothy Kyle Dunn. He tap tunes the top of each TKD mandolin resulting in impressive tone, sustain and volume. He is well known for his superb setup and the looks speak for themselves.

This brand film was produced in conjunction with several music videos that featured the TKD Mandolin.
